Lake Norris is well known for its many osprey nests. Less known, except to Dave's Yak Tales readers, is the great egret rookery.
Red shouldered hawk. At the edge of the rookery
Red maple growing from cypress knee
Distant great egret roost
Did this great blue heron adopt?
So, I held the urge to go and would eat later.
Had to turn back
Getting busy at the launch.
Which was a bummer, because I had to pee.
No facilities. Went along side the car. After unloading, and loading the kayak, I went for a walk
This is where I had planned on stopping while kayaking
An hour walk
There is a sign in sheet. 4 people/groups filled it out. An angler, 2 groups of horseback riders, and me. I saw 6 other kayakers. Not one signed the sheet. If you have a sign in sheet where you paddle, sign it. Or else how will the authorities know we use, and need access too, the water?
